The undigested food is usually comprised of high-fiber vegetable matter which isn’t completely digested by the enzymes in your digestive tract. If you have insufficient stomach acid, these enzymes will not be released. You could take supplements for these deficiencies, but it’s likely you won’t be able to absorb them either. You need to increase your stomach acid levels so you can absorb these nutrients from your food.
Also I have sinus infections all the time. I have not eaten gluten nor dairy for 7 years. I was on antibiotics for about 8 years for various infections that I kept on getting which I suspect ruined my gut flora etc. I think my stomach ferments everything and enzymes used to work for me, as did probiotics but now even those do not seem to help much.

Every time we swallow we take some air into the stomach. A burp is an involuntary expulsion of wind (gas) by the stomach when it becomes distended from an excess of swallowed air. Eating rapidly, which can occur when you eat hot foods, gulping food and drink, drinking a lot of liquid with meals, chewing gum, smoking or wearing loose dentures all promote air swallowing.
I’m scared for her to try the baking soda test. She vomits frequently. Acid reducers make her symptoms worse but the doctors say it’s necessary to protect her esophagus. It’s very frustrating not knowing which way to go. I suffer from heartburn, food sensitivities, bloating etc. after certain meals, and sometimes not until the next day.
